Mitt Romney is for gay rights.*
*Except marriage equality. At least not during the primaries.

That's so not true, Bil. Romney has signed the pledge by the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) that he supports changing our Constitution to ban marriage equality, and to only nominate Supreme Court justices, federal judges, and an attorney general who are committed to their opposition to gay marriage. He also said he would not change Don't Ask Don't Tell when the U.S. is at war (when are we not at war??!!). Not only will the LGBT community gain no rights under a president Romney, we will actually go backwards.
That was meant tongue in cheek, Marc. He says he's in favor of equal rights in the video - just not marriage equality. The asshat is a joke.
